Jacksonville, FL — An abrupt change in our weather from record-shattering heat to brisk, damp, and chilly today. Action New Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says rain or drizzle is around this morning.
“Everybody gets in on some of that rain, averaging only a tenth to a quarter of an inch but temperatures 30 degrees colder this afternoon than yesterday afternoon”, Buresh said.
We hit 89 at Jacksonville International Airport. The average first 90 degree day is May 2nd.
“It’s the third month in a row where we’ve accomplished a record high temperature for the entire month...so what a stretch of ‘winter’, huh?”, said Buresh.
Temperatures fall tonight into the low 40’s. Saturday will be cool but decent overall with afternoon temps in the mid-60’s but partly cloudy skies. Sunday begins another warming trend as temperatures climb into the low 70’s. We could see a few afternoon showers, too.
